125 St Georges Road

When I lived at St Georges Road in Southwark in the sixties we-the-guys had an idea to build a false level into the lounge space as this was a terrace property famed in London for the social aspects in architecture the ceiling height was a mear 15 feet high allows for such moderniziums.
So when I saw this kit at Gizmodo that has many dimensions might have aided the construction but then you have to grasp the aspect of several mad~drunken people jumping up-and down on it

Samsung is still working to get NAND in more devices, and if they keep putting up numbers like that, they might just be successful

Today, yes today, Dad and Stell were coming round to update my telecomplus account which involves checking my telewest broadband account circa july 2002 [750k internet] which was bundled with a standard tv cable package and land line which was originally with BT before. They have promised me a saving of £98.45 p.a. on gas and electricity but they give you a plug-in-box that goes between the line feed and the hand-set. A note about mobile charges [no free minutes] just 8 pence a minute on all calls (national only?) and because of the visitors I cleaned and cleaned, well I tided up a bit. And because we are all in Stell's club all calls to each other are FREE don't know about three-way-calling

Category: Major Accident
Train Crash in Ufton Nervet a hamlet in Berkshire just south of the main trunk [M4 motorway] between London and the West Country hit a car on a level crossing [road crossing] was said to have raised the express's motor unit into the air [500 tons+] tossing it off the track (the car would have had to be jammed into the track with it's drive shaft squewed to be in line with the track) how this happened is beyond belief as most sorts of impact of this nature would have flattened the car beyond - beyond?
update Because the locomotive was a Class 43 High Speed Express and the front bodywork curves under neath you could say this aided derailment but the BBC says it derailed at a set of points down the line
